Balakrishna Niwas
Visiting From: Mysuru
Visited In The Month Off: MARCH

What an interesting place.
The room is the biggest we have stayed in...10mx5m and 3-4m high to the apex of the ceiling. Windows on 2 sides including a huge picture window and balcony looking across the valley.

We arrived by bus to Madikeri and Mr Babu helpfully collected us in the town and took us on to Virajpet at the end of out trip. He also arranged tuk tuk for us.
He was very generous with fruit and snacks and helpful with everything.
Breakfast was great but he is less geared up to evening meals.

Awesome stay in the hills around Madikeri
Visiting From: Berlin
Visited In The Month Off: November

This is a very nice place on a hill in the forests around Madikeri. We had a tranquil and relaxed stay and were in the best hands. The owner took good care and provided tasty meals as well as a very good coffee. The room was clean and with a balcony providing a nice view into the hills of the western Ghats. We can only recommend this place, especially if you are plan to stay close to Madikeri.

A privileged stay
Visiting From: Vadodara
Visited In The Month Off: July

There could be many other accommodations providing equal or more comforts than Balkrishna Niwas, yet else where one won't be able to have Babu Sir and that alone makes all the difference.
Babu Sir ,who is a spirituality enlightened army man for whom being the host is not a profession but for him it's a passion.
Here one would be treated like a close family and not as tourist and shall get the feeling that one have arrived at the respected and beloved friends home.
His love and caring is unforgettable.
The rooms are quite specious with very elegant furniture. All rooms are with balcony, viewing below the lush green valley.
If one is at Madikeri, there is no second thought, one should grab the opportunity to stay at Balkrishna Niwas and a privilege to be guest of Babu sir, a gem of a person.

Scenic, beautiful, and comfortable
Visiting From: Mumbai
Visited In The Month Off: July

Balakrishna Niwas is a beautiful home, on top of a hill, surrounded by beautiful scenic views all around - but that is secondary to the hospitality of Babu Sir who will take care of you like family. He is the warmest person whose hospitality is unparalleled. You get treated to hot, homely meals with a variety of local dishes and coffee from the nearby estate. Would love to stay at Balakrishna Niwas when I visit Coorg again only to experience Babu Sir's hospitality one more time.

The property is at a good proximity from Madikeri town, but still isolated for those who need a quiet space. The final approach road is a steep winding slope so one needs to plan vehicular travel accordingly. All rooms are spacious and have beautiful views!

Our family stay with 6 year old was pleasant though for a short duration of 24 hours.
I liked the place for its serene, ventilated premises - clean air, sunlight, spacious rooms, on top of a hill/mountain air with so
much greenery and trees surrounding us with a scenic view of mountains. Inside the room and balcony.
Decent food offering at a price, south Indian food and well received host and a human being.
Thank you for making our trip memorable.

An escape from the city
Visiting From: Bangalore
Visited In The Month Off: May

Delightful experience, House is very big, retreated from the city, nature is all around. We had a panoramic view from the bedroom. Mr. Babu took  good care of us. An elderly gentleman, he is. Excellent, Excellent!!!. I am all ready and rejuvenated to face the Bangalore's mad traffic and the coming week.
